Intake sound generator

Is it just me or is the intake sound generator become annoying?

I prefer the noise off to on now after getting more seat time. Can it be just turned off or goes on and off with modes only?

I completely agree! I changed the settings to have the ISG on the lowest possible setting in all driving modes. Sounds better too!

Are you guy's talking about engine sound during normal driving or sportier or even track day driving?

For all driving. You set the ISG for each drivetrain setting. Anything but the lowest setting (aside from the blocker plate) is a lie!

Personally dislike the ISG feature on the 12C (and other cars). Just pumping intake noise into the car for effect. Reminds me of my teenage years running an intake on stock Civic. I keep it on the lowest volume in all settings. That block off plate sounds interesting! Had no idea this was an option. Can you still hear the turbos spool/blow off well with it blocked off?

Thank you for the feedback.

ISG block off

I still have these available and can make more on request within a week.

PM me at XPRD for orders, thanks.
